This was a pretty good promo vid. The voice actors seem genuinely excited about the game.

Whenever classy old guys with great voices like Martin Sheen crop up in my video game I am all like: man, I bet this guy thinks video games are still pac-man. He thinks he is voicing blinky the ghost.

@DeXterminator: Personally I think the "hate" comes from the fact that no one expected her. She's not really a know voice actor, nor is she a known actor. Hell, most of us probably know her as "the girl who licked the PSP". She doesn't really have a reason to be there apart from drawing in even more fanboys.

James Vega is like Bioware asked themselves, "How do we make a character more generic and boring than Jacob?"

I started cracking up when I saw Keith David. Also, I think his spine is broken judging by that posture.

hahaha same here.

Really nice vid but I realized at the end that they didn't show Garrus, Tali or Male shephard's actors. Hope they do a followup video for them, maybe with wrex's voice actor too.

And Bioware's Potato Face technology does strange things to Jessica Chobot.

wtf? So ... you already played the game? And why are people so damn negative? Just because there is someone in there as a voice actor you dont like? ... geez

Because for a while now between the GB crew and the comunity it is cool to hate EA, Bioware and anything linked to either of them and i don't expect it to stop anytime soon, its one of the reason i consume less GB every day because its just becoming a very negative place for certian things and if things still feel the same to me come membership renewal time i most likely won't pony up again. My persoanl opinion is that it all started with Jeff being butt hurt over BF3 and stuff that took place during review time frame. And if Jeff pull's rank and reviews ME3 it will be a 2 or 3 no matter how good the game is, but i am not expecting a lot of positive coverage of the game either way here at GB.

Yeah no sorry, after the Mass Effect 3 script leaked it basically sealed its own fate as equal to or less than Dragon Age 2. The end of the game apes off of Deus Ex for christ's sake. If it gets more than a 1 I will be surprised, whether or not Jeff "DeanoXD's personal vendetta personified" Gerstmann reviews it or not.

Also it's really easy to hate Bioware for Dragon Age 2 and their handling of ME3 so far, and even easier as a PC gamer myself to hate EA. So yes that must be very "cool" now go sit with the neeeerrrrrds, us cool people have games to play.

I'm pretty happy they aren't trying to pass these games off as RPGs anymore. Nothing wrong with where they're going with it, although I would really like to see an action-RPG more like the first game set in the same universe again.

Also the new characters look kind of dumb but whatever. I'll still happily play it.

Posted by Curious_George

I do not like this James Vega character. Why is it the more I see of ME3 the more it looks like it's trying to become/market itself to the Gears of War audience? Both of these new characters are the worst. I don't want more boring humans in my party. They should be making more characters like Thane and less characters that look like Jersey Shore rejects.

Wow you have a gift man. Hey, could you let me know what KOA:Reckoning and SSX will be getting as well depending on who reviews the game? Thanks duder.

Did not realize that EDI is voiced by Tricia Helfer, AKA Cylon Number Six in the new BSG.

Now I know why I liked EDI so much.

Jessica Chobot has said on her blog that the part she played in ME 3 was A VERY SMALL ROLE, so calm down people.

Yeah, because goddamn is not as if they could have hired an actual actor. There just are not enough of those. Better to find some game reviewer who only got hired in the industry because of her looks.
 
It must be great for Martin Sheen and Keith David to know that they are in the esteemed company of an internet writer with no professional qualifications at all!
 
Honestly this is probably the last Bioware game I buy. It's as if every release now is dumbing down to the lowest level and not in an amusing and satirical way either.
Posted by Declarius

Had no idea who Jessica Chobot was until someone said she was the... lady... that licked the PSP. Probably not a person you see much of being a PC gamer. The only time I'd heard of her was when someone posted a gif of her licking a PSP on GAF.

This makes me sick! Soon enough i'm going to see Mass Effect 3 at the grocery store check out on a cover of Star right next to "Kim Kardashian eats a couch"

Get this out of my life! All these actors (except may be Seth Green...) are just lying.

Was it a full couch, or a loveseat?

Dear god, are they kidding me with Chobot? I call Ethnics violation right there!

Also, first chance I get, renegading and kicking her the hell off of the ship. I want serious characters, not some floozy who licks PSP and gets job offers and awesome stuff!!!11 for it. Seriously, WTH.

Posted by m0rdr3d

Jessica Chobot in Mass Effect 3?! What a dismal bit of news. I thought it was just a really lame joke, but the trailer seems so serious.

I wonder, if the fans get pissy enough, if they'll offer a Chobot-less version...

Hey I obviously don't play video games but I worked on this game so you should buy it!

Chobot's character looks as bad as she does in real life. First we get James Vega, now Diana Allers.

WTF IS THIS SHIT?! JERSEY SHORE IN SPACE?

Give me some hard-ass, lead-biting mu'fukkas like Zaeed, Legion or Thane and the rest can go f**** an Elcor for all I care.

Well...I'm gonna replay ME2 now. lol.

I have to finish my second playthrough to get ready for it! Isn't fucking amazing how all 3 of these games can be played in sequence and carry through to one another? i still think that is blindingly awesome.

And so is Keith David's FUCKING SHIRT!

Exactly! This would be my 2nd play-through actually. ME is probably one of my favorite sci-fi universes maaan so good! >_<

It really is amazing to just sit down and get through em. ME1..ME2...amazing. Can't wait for 3!

Posted by MannAlive

Sad that it took losing respect for Jessica Chobot to realize that I had some respect for Jessica Chobot. This isn't what journalists are supposed to do. Also, each revealed decision for this game pinches me with its cynicism. I want this game to be awesome, but the message every piece of its marketing is "Warning: Do Not Pre-order."

this is a stupid idea for a trailer. Nobody cares about voice actors. Also it's kind of spoilery too.
